Dexter Morgan: Why couldn't you just leave me to do my work in peace? Why'd you have to go and ruin everything?
Sgt. James Doakes: You're a killer. I catch killers.
Dexter Morgan: So do I. I caught you...
Sgt. James Doakes: I'm not a killer.
Dexter Morgan: You are. That's why you've always known what I am. That's why you have more officer-related shootings than anybody else. Only I don't *fuck* with you when you shoot somebody. Why couldn't you pay me the same processional courtesy?

The Shocking Truth!
24 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the second season of Dexter and it's a very good episode. This is what I like to call the calm before the storm. This episode is focused on Dexter's past life and what he uncovers which will ultimately lead to a shocking truth. As always, the tension is high, the acting is great, and there are many unexpected twists and turns.

In this episode, "There's Something About Harry," Dexter has Doakes locked up in a cage and Doakes hints about Harry's life. Dexter contemplates on what he will do next. He also decides to reconcile with Rita. Lt. LaGuerta believes that Doakes is innocent and she tries to prove it. Debra realizes that once the case is over, her relationship with Lundy may not last. Finally, Angel continues his fling with Lila, but Lila may have a trick or two up her sleeve.

Overall, this is an excellent episode and it does a great job on setting up the pieces on what promises to be an action-packed end to the season. The ending will just shock you and that I can promise. I rate this episode 9/10.
